For My Primo In Texas

For My Primo In Texas


Street was talking to Lupe Lozano inside “Mickey D’s” on a Wednesday about 4:15 pm. When suddenly there a “Blazer” approach the parking space. Street had seen the Blazer starting to accelerate fast and coming toward us. Keep in mind that Michael Tolbert was entering through the back door. Boom, the Blazer came through the window. Michael Tolbert took a “hit” that left him with two broken legs. He is currently Loyola Hospital.

Keeping It One Hundred

Keeping It One Hundred


You had a car crash that involved two Lake County Sheriff Deputies that left one dead… Deputy who survived the fatal car crash lied on the police report in claimed the Deputy who died in the fatal crash was driving, you feel me? In actuality, he was covering up.

The Penalty

Sheriff Buncich gave this Deputy two weeks off “without pay” and some counseling program, and case was closed. “Real cop” would have “launched” Deputy for lying on a report. “Fast, quick and in a hurry”, you feel me? The Lake County Sheriff Merit Board “rubber stamped” Buncich’s decision, which was of a politician, not a cop!!!

That stuff Buncich wrote in the paper, he needs to blow that out his “you know what”.


Phonier than a “3-dollar bill” … East Chicago Poe-Poe was on trial in Judge Murray’s chamber… Case was “shepherd in” by Sheriff Dominguez who pushed for this “weak case”. But the “beef” involved East Chicago Poe-Poe who supported “J.B.” over Dominguez (Hatfield and McCoy). Street was right there supporting East Chicago Poe-Poe and riding herd on this case. Chief Alcala, Sgt. Grav, Hillsman, Frankie Maldonado and Poe-Poe’s people were all there to support him. Street always did a head count. And failed to see “J.B.” in court to support East Chicago Poe-Poe. After all this is why East Chicago Poe-Poe was trial in this “political vendetta that played out in front of me. E.C. Poe-Poe supported Buncich over Dominguez for Sheriff, you feel me?

Back Story

East Chicago Poe-Poe was “Mexican cat” who supported Buncich over Dominguez. They play rough in Lake County politics. (Trump up charges).

Street Had to Dip

Called up Buncich that night and told him that he was “M.I.A.” on supporting E.C. Poe-Poe in Lake County Superior Court. Street had some bass in his voice as he told Buncich. “My guy on the “hot seat” for supporting you, and you can’t come and do support for him.” Street was hot!  Next day Buncich showed up in Jude Murray’s courtroom.

Morale to Story

Street don’t make that call. Buncich don’t come to court.


Note: Case that involved two deputies in car crash was inherited by Sheriff Buncich from Sheriff Dominguez.

Somebody You Should Know

Somebody You Should Know


Remember my friend, a dedicated man named Marcus Martin, had been had been working on a ministry for the homeless. Not too long ago he made a push for a homeless shelter in East Chicago. Street did an interview with him to try and explain this homeless shelter to the power that be. Later in the to Marcus inside McDonald’s on Indianapolis Blvd when he told me the work that he was doing by trying to document the homeless in our neck of the woods. Marcus handed me his card and told me to call if I come upon someone sleeping outside who might have nowhere to sleep; i.e., homeless.

Lord Put A Man In My Path

Street was rolling on that West Calumet bus on a Saturday afternoon. Juan, the bus driver, got off to go to use the restroom in the South Shore train station. When he returned to the bus, Juan tells me, “There’s a guy sleeping inside the snack shop.” Street didn’t hesitate to call up Brother Marcus. Hurry Street called up Marcus Martin.

Thank You Jesus Part

Walking the walk, talking the talk. Marcus Martin and the security guard talked to the guy and got him to the hospital. First time around when they talked, he told them that he was waiting on girlfriend. But later, he came clean and told Marcus Martin and the security guard the truth. He was thinking about going upstairs and laying down on the track, so the train could run him. Marcus Martin testimony as we talked like weeks later. This was right around Christmas time and turned out to be a memorable experience that Street would never forget.

Mayor Copeland

Bet you, he can tell you who Brother Marcus is.

Didn’t put Photo of Brother Marcus because he wants the lights on others, not him, you feel me.
